So, it happened again! Another 1920s themed beach party! A group of us from the Great Boston Vintage Society got together before the Roaring 20s Lawn Party to enjoy some vintage silliness by the sea shore. Many of you may remember my post from last year. To date, it's still my most popular post. :) No biting bugs this year and the water was the perfect temperature!
It was such a wonderful day! Great people, a beautiful setting and much silliness! What more could you ask for?
Yep, silly. I warned you. :)
Cori and I both wore vintage wool suits. Mine needed a fair amount of repair work before I could actually wear it. But it was totally worth it. Even though it's made of wool the material is very light weight. It was a warm day but I found it very comfortable to wear. Not as hot as one might think a wool swim suit would be.
If I can find the right shade and weight of wool, I would really like to reproduce this swim suit.
The wool swim suit buttons down the front. The bloomers are attached to the waistband so the whole suit is one piece.
I didn't swim in mine but I did get in and wade. The bottom edges of the attached bloomers and skirt got a little wet but I made sure to rinse the suit when I got home.
Cori completed his beach day attire with his straw boater, silky rayon robe, and a cane. He is so dapper.
I'm already looking forward to and planning ahead for next year!
